    Hey Bob, you may have better luck going with a low carbohyrdate approach for lowering your cholesterol. Try cutting out all trans fats and try to get an equal amount of saturated, polyunsaturated, and monounsaturated fats. In regards to polyunsaturated fats try to get a 1:1 ratio of omega 3s to omega 6s.

    Also avocados are amazing:

    I found this site and it looks great.
    especially this page cos I usually use tofu/soya mince in only one way

    For your health condition, I've heard oats and olive oil (obviously, don't eat them together :tongue:) can help bring down levels of cholesterol. But when you use the olive oil, use it sparingly and it's better for you, not heated, like put it in salads and stuff. Cut down on eggs, especially the yoke, you can use the whites tho'. Cut out red meat. And exercise too. :smile: Walking is great.
